Forum: feature_films Subject: How Do We Determine The Non-derived Source?

For a particular film, is the first one loaded into the Archive "All Files: HTTP" directory the original item that the other formats are derived from? For Example, the silent film Asphalt (1929) HTTP directory shows this:

../
Asphalt1929.thumbs/ 14-Jan-2012 16:56 -
Asphalt1929.flv 14-Jan-2012 16:33 315405928
Asphalt1929.gif 14-Jan-2012 16:45 278745
Asphalt1929.mp4 14-Jan-2012 20:49 563322681
Asphalt1929.ogv 14-Jan-2012 22:06 420737923
Asphalt1929_files.xml 22-Jan-2012 13:07 33687
Asphalt1929_meta.xml 15-Jan-2012 03:40 4562
Asphalt1929_reviews.xml 22-Jan-2012 13:06 1855

Since the ".flv" version has the earliest timestamp, can I infer that it is the source version for all of the other formats offered?

Yes, the .flv is the original file for that item.

Click Asphalt1929_files.xml and search for the string "original".

Thank you both for your responses. This is very useful information as I would always like to work with the original source when I am creating a dvd.
